The Huntington Theatre Company's Education Department recognizes the challenges of remote learning, as all schools across the Commonwealth have closed due to Coronavirus. We have curated a collection of classes and workshops that our staff and staff across the Huntington are willing to teach remotely, designed to last between 30 and 60 minutes. 

Guest Lectures and Teacher Trainings are on summer vacation - we'll resume these offerings in a few months, once school is back in session.
